Nano-LPMW Catalog Pages

The Nano-LPMW is a unique 3 axis piezo nanopositioning system designed to hold multiwell plates, slides, dishes and environmental chambers. The Nano-LPMW has a low profile and extra-large center aperture with 200 micron range of motion in all three axes. The low height of the Nano- LPMW Series allows it to be easily integrated into existing inverted optical microscopes and is compatible with a lrange of microscope stages. Like the related Nano-LPS Series, the Nano-LPMW is ideal for demanding microscopy applications which require long range travel, high stability, and three axes of motion. The Nano-LPMW is the only 3 axis piezo nanopositioning system which can hold multiwell plates and incubators. Precise and repeatable motion is made possible through closed loop control combined with PicoQ® position sensors. For single axis multiwell plate nanopositioning, see the Nano-ZL Series.

Mad City Labs, Inc
Mad City Labs, Inc has been a leading manufacturer of flexure based piezo nanopositioning systems capable of sub-nanometer positioning resolution since 1998. Our piezo nanopositioning product line covers the entire spectrum of piezo nanopositioning capabilities while maintaining a leadership role in multi-axis stages for high speed optical microscopy imaging. Mad City Labs engineers use 3D CAD and finite element analysis to produce piezo nanopositioners which combine long ranges of motion with exceptional linearity, orthogonality, and stability. Our in-house CNC machining centers and wire EDMs provide complete control of mechanical assembly production and allow Mad City Labs to design and fabricate custom systems with minimal engineering costs and short lead times. We deliver the tools for nanotechnology in 30 to 45 days and provide the highest level of customer service and satisfaction in the industry. We provide innovative and practical solutions for today’s demanding biotechnology and nanotechnology applications. Most Mad City Labs piezo nanopositioners can be controlled by our high speed USB 2.0 interface. Applications for nanopositioners include super resolution microscopy, high speed confocal imaging, AFM, NSOM, scanning probe microscopy, fiber positioning, single molecule spectroscopy, single molecule/particle tracking, high resolution optical alignment, SR optical microscopy, sub-diffraction limit microscopy, nanoscopy and lithography.
